Jazzy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jazzy
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: African Pygmy Goat mix
Home: Monroe, Connecticut, USA
   This is Princess Jasmine, Jazzy for short, my goat. She is very special in many ways. I bought her when she was seven weeks old from a woman who told me she was the only surviving kid out of a litter of four. The others had sadly frozen to death. She was bottle fed up until I got her. I brought her home and she fit right in. She loved it here, she followed me around wherever I went, even in the house. She got along with the cat, the dogs, and the ducks. I took her hiking a lot around my property. I have twelve acres and lots of trails around my house. After a while I figured out she loved to go for car rides. I would take her everywhere. My friends houses, school sometimes, and to some parks. People who see her in my car always want to see her and pet her. Everyone knows her and loves her.

    For a while I thought maybe she was lonely here but only for a short while. My cousin lives here with me and she now has eight Nigerian Dwarf goats of her own. So Jazzy has lots of friends now and she is very happy. She robs my grandmother's bird feeders and duck food. She gets into a whole bunch of mischief, but no one minds. They all think she's so funny. Jazzy is so special because she has such a great personality and I don't know what I would do without her.
